Two handlers were seen in a surveillance footage, mistreating the giant panda cubs. They were even seen slamming the cubs into a wall in the enclosure, dragging the poor animals by their scruff and throwing them head first into the ground.

Meanwhile, Jingpeng said that the public does not realize that pandas can be dangerous too, Business Insider reports. He defended himself saying that even the cubs are stronger and more dangerous. The worker claimed that one of the cubs bit him during feeding and his hand started to bleed. In defense, he pushed one of the cubs because it tried to bite him again.

The management of the breeding site also said that the panda cubs acted excitedly that night and when one of them needed to be separated for a medical check-up the next day, the others wanted to follow. The keepers had a difficult time keeping the baby pandas in the enclosure, so they tried to drag the cubs by force. All of the bear keepers were injured during the incident.

However, despite the explanation of the panda keeper and the institution, many people still believe that the workers have been too rude and cruel to one of the most loved animals on the planet.
